    1. Oh my, yes, l remember those- started in 1963 – ended 1966 l will dedicate that to you in the final episode 🙂

      We have talked of Get Smart before – l used to laugh so hard at both him and 99 🙂

        1. Ah dang… I started a comment and dont know if it sent before I was finished or if it got disappeared… this may be a duplicate.

          I didn’t watch Heckle & Jeckle or UNCLE. All the others are fantastic!

          Get Smart…just the opening sequence is awesome!

          Hogan’s Heros…”I know nothing…nothing!”

          I still occasionally put my arms out and say “Here I come to save the day”

          Jetsons, Yogi, Mr Magoo, Felix and his Bag Of Tricks.

          This is fun!!

          1. All excellent – yes it is fun, it’s stepping back into our yesterday’s. I sit here creating them and listning to the music and smiling all the time 🙂

  1. Get smart was a favorite, and I was so disappointed with the movie. Man from Uncle, jetsons, Mighty Mouse I remember them well.

    1. Ah the film – l loved the film – l think sometimes the problem is that we come to think and expect the films to be like the original humour we experienced.

      I sat down and watched it just as a kind of parody of the original and then treated it as a comedy spy film and just really loved it … l think Anne and Steve were good together.

      Loved Mighty Mouse, Jetsons and Uncle too 🙂

        1. Yes exactly – for me – and you too there is nothing or no one that can ever truly recreate the original Get Smart – sad but true 🙂

          Those programmes all those years ago just made my mornings – l used to watch them before school and l always walked in with a smile 🙂

  2. Watched all of these with either my brothers growing up, or my children growing up. 😊 With the exception of the British TV, which we couldn’t get in those days. My Mother still watches reruns of Hogan’s Heroes every week night on a local TV station where she lives. Thanks, Rory, for the reminder of all the enjoyment these shows brought, especially while sharing them with loved ones!

    1. Hey Betty, absolute pleasure – it’s a fun mini series for me also – brings back lots of mixed memories most of them good too 🙂

      Have a lovely Tuesday 🙂

  3. I seem to remember being young once. It was shortly after the end of the War of the Roses! Not exactly admitting to being older than dirt, but we must face reality. And today would have been my Mom’s 100th birthday! Just noticed you have sunshine — seems like Kentucky has moved into the rain forest lately because we have it all the time now. Enjoy it for me too, okay?
